Guessing Asteroids, but a full side pic would help give me a little more confidence.

I'm going to be a contrarian and say Lunar Lander.  ;D

No, seriously... what they said.  First cabinet I ever owned was an Asteroids, and even though that has a later coin door, that would be my guess.

I'm pretty sure that my Asteroids cab has the same coin door. Except mine has a little cancer and no coin return flappy things  :-\

Yes, and that's what makes this an Asteroids rather than Lunar Lander, actually.  Some Asteroids did have that kind of coin door, it's just that the early ones did not.  Looking back, I couldn't say for sure if mine was the earlier or later style... I'm kind of thinking later now that I think about it.  Funnily enough, I think the door on FLYNN'S is an old ATARI door like this, although I'm not sure if it came off an Asteroids or not, since I got it with a Missile Command cab.  The cab I used was a Midway mini-myte Omega Race, but I much prefer the ATARI door.
